Thanks for asking me to respond. If it indeed was a fracture it should have healed by this time. If you have persistent pain even after 6 months the reason could be something else. For one a stiff ankle accompanied by weak muscles could cause pain in the joint. This can be overcome by visiting a good physio who could put you on a program to recover from the stiffness. In the other hand a hidden cartilage or ligament injury that has not adequately healed could also cause persistent pain. Both of these injuries are not easily detected on a pain xray. You may need to visit an ortho surgeon who can examine the ankle and order an MRI scan to detect such injuries. My suggestion would be to undergo a good physio program first. If pain or stiffness persists then you can have an MRI to file or these injuries. Good luck!

Dear gentleman. Greetings, as a matter of fact the issue might be different from what you have been updated. Visiting. Physical therapist would be the best option.
